Beggars Banquet's food absolutely made our wedding. We had people commenting days after our wedding how amazing the food was. They did an amazing job setting everything up and making it look delicious. The entire staff was very professional and made our wedding a grand event. My favorite part was when we were given a basket that had each of the meal choices in a container, silverware, our napkins, and a handwritten note from Curry saying thank you. We will definitely be using them again just because of the thoughtfulness of Curry (and because of the amazing food!)

Helping my daughter plan her reception was made easy because of Beggars Banquet. Currey and her staff were very patient, LISTENED to what my daughter wanted, and put together a plan that was executed to perfection. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Even on a hot July evening, this crew had on smiles and were a delight. Thank you for helping us make our daughter's wedding one to remember!

We worked with Currey from Beggars Banquet. She was incredibly flexible with our requests and responded to emails quickly. The food was great and the service was wonderful! All of our guests commented on the quality of the food for a wedding service. The price was right as well. I'd suggest this for future brides.

My husband and I booked Beggers Banquet to cater our wedding and couldn't have been happier. We unfortunately weren't able to book a tasting prior to the event but everything turned out wonderful. Everyone loved every piece of food and the set up/display was great as well. The entire staff was friendly and fun to work with. The event planner, Currey, was very easy to work with and is amazing at her job - very professional, respectful, and extremely responsive. No complaints at all. Perfect catering service to go with!!

Currey was phenomenal to work with! The types of food we wanted to serve at our wedding were a big concern to my mother, but Currey is the one who made everything okay. When we said we wanted Moroccan food, Currey suggested making a chicken dish and calling it "Golden Chicken" to ease my mothers worries of people not wanting to eat something unfamiliar! BB was so flexible with what we wanted, as we went back and forth many times on how we wanted the menu to be structured and what to include. Each time we emailed Currey, she responded promptly with whatever change we requested. The food, of course, was delicious on the day of and you haven't lived until you've tried their mashed potato bar - definitely a wedding must! Currey wasn't afraid to go out of the box with the menu and offer a variety of more "eclectic" foods beyond the standard wedding fish, chicken or steak. We so appreciated her flexibility, spunk and calm personality when working with such a large aspect of the wedding!
We also used BB for our linens/plateware/flatware and everything looked lovely! Those were much easier decisions than the food and were very easy to make, especially since BB has such a large selection to choose from.

I honestly don't have a bad thing to say about Beggars Banquet! We were hosting a large wedding in December and wanted the food to feel like it was expensive, but unfortuately did not have an unlimited budget. Currey at Beggars was so willing to work with us to come up with solutions that fit within our constraints, and we got rave reviews from our guests (short ribs were delicious). We were so thankful for Currey's suggestions with everything from the dance floor location to napkin colors - she was instrumental in helping our day come together. Anytime we requested Currey to change something from our original plan, she was more than willing to do so, even though I know it wasn't always convenient for her team (table wine service in a packed venue with full tables...not ideal, but they stepped up to the challenge!). Thank you, Beggars, for helping make our day seamless!

We were so impressed with Beggars Banquet throughout the entire planning process. Currey and Marty were so responsive and helpful, and they never rushed or pressured us. The rental selection is extensive, and we were thrilled with our linens, plates, etc - the tables looked amazing. All of guests could not stop raving about the food. Beggars did such a wonderful job with presentation, pacing of the courses, and the food was of course delicious! The bartenders were great, and the entire staff was friendly and pleasant to our guests. They did so much behind the scenes work to help make our wedding the most amazing event. Plus they made certain that my husband and I had a chance to eat everything that was served as we were often too busy to sit down and truly appreciate the food until after the wedding. Our vegetarian guests said the veg meal we served was the best they've ever had at a wedding! We can't thank Beggars enough for all that they did - from the rentals to catering to setting up the room - they truly were fabulous and we appreciate it so much!!

From the very beginning, just seeing sample menus let us know we were on to something great. The team at Beggars is incredible. They operated seamlessly with all of our other vendors and made our wedding really special. The food was divine. Planning this remotely meant no food tasting for my wife and I but we had full faith. Beggars exceeded our expectations by a mile. We had guests coming by throughout the evening complimenting the food.

We had the best possible experience we could have asked for in a caterer with Beggar's. We are total foodies and they helped us develop an awesome menu that was perfect for our summer wedding. Not to mention being incredibly responsible and flexible when I changed my mind about the plated v. family style and asked for multiple quotes. Currey and Marty were pleasant throughout the entire process. Also, most importantly, the food was INCREDIBLE and the service was impeccable. Our guests are still talking about it.

Currey at Beggar Banquet did an AMAZING job at my and my husband's wedding. I found Beggar's Banquet because we wanted to have a vegan reception and they actually advertised a vegan menu on their website - when we came in for a tasting, we were not disappointed! The food was innovative and delicious - my mom was asking for seconds and my fiancé and I knew our guests would love it. Working with Currey was fantastic - she went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was exactly the way I envisioned it, from changing ingredients in the food, to personally folding the napkins into little bows herself ahead of the wedding, creating a layout of the event space and going over the rental list to make sure I had everything I needed. The service was top-notch and we got so many complements from guests on how much they loved the food (even though my husband and I were the only vegans). And to top it all off, the food costs what food actually costs and isn't an inflated price - such a breath of fresh air! I loved working with Currey and high recommend her and the team at Beggar's Banquet to all brides to be.

I can not speak more highly of Beggar's Banquet. Marty & Currey were by far the most professional people I worked with during my entire planning process, and were so kind during the whole process. The food itself was SPECTACULAR. I lost count of the number of people who told me not only that it was the best wedding food they had ever had tasted, but also the people who told me it tasted TOO GOOD to be "wedding food". Marty & Currey were so on their game with everything they did: they organized rentals with that vendor, pointed out discrepancies to us, and provided smart ideas to make sure everything flowed nicely and everyone remained comfortable. I got married on the hottest weekend of the year, and a few days before, they offered to provide water bottles and buckets full of us (lined with linen to look nicer even!) to make sure everyone remained hydrated during the ceremony. Totally their idea, but one that we were so grateful for! They really make everyone feel like their most important client. I felt so at ease knowing they were there. Currey even helped lay out the train of my dress and veil before I walked over to my outdoor ceremony! It was just little things like that that made them so special to work with.

If you are getting married anywhere near the Orange/Charlottesville area, you would be foolish NOT to hire Beggar's Banquet! Out of 5 stars, they definitely deserve 10.

Beggars Banquet created an incredible menu for us based off of our general request for a local and seasonal family style meal. They listened to our story and helped to create dishes that had meaning to us - we got engaged while fly-fishing, and one of our appetizers included smoked trout (and was INCREDIBLE!) Even more incredible- the sweet potato biscuit with apple butter and ham. Our family style meal really made everyone feel comfortable and personal- and the food was perfect for that kind of service. They took care of every detail, and were really flexible with us in making the dinner fit our vision perfectly. Marty and Currey were both great to work with from our first meeting all the way until the wedding day.

I am so glad that we chose Beggar’s Banquet for our wedding! We were very focused on having a seasonally and local fall buffet. They let us completely customize the menu and revise it multiple times. They responded to my emails quickly and directly and clearly answered my questions. Everything was presented beautifully as well- their website pictures are not representational of how great it all looked. Another bonus is that we were able to do all of our tabletops rentals through them. One bill, one check = less headache for me as a bookkeeper. Unbelievably, not only was it easier- their pricing was fantastic. They also provided us with staff to serve the wine and beer we had purchased without charging us any additional corking fees. All of our guests enjoyed the buffet and came back for multiple helpings. At the end of the night we got a little to-do basket so that we actually had something to eat at 2 am when we finally got home. Give these guys a call!

I really cannot rave enough about Beggars Banquet. From the first meeting with the lovely owners, Marty and Currey, my husband and I were highly impressed with this business. They were so open to all our ideas (and we had a few non-traditional ones!) and so easy to work with. They were our last catering meeting after a week of talking to vendors, and we had dealt with a few caterers who were either too pushy with their own ideas, or so overly relaxed they verged on disorganized. The staff at Beggars is totally professional and on top of their game, but at the same time are very flexible and willing to work with whatever you want. We had our wedding reception at a private home which required a fair bit of logistical planning to pull off, and the entire staff, specifically our catering manager, was so helpful and knowledgeable about the best way to do things. The twenty years of experience really shows. But separate of all of this, their food is quite simply amazing. My husband and I were floored with the quality of our buffet meal. The ingredients were fresh, everything was cooked superbly, and it was all well-spiced and flavorful. We had chicken and salmon, and while both were highly regarded by the guests, we had a number of people remark how impressed they were that a caterer had managed to cook chicken that wasn't dry or bland, but juicy! Our wedding was outdoors, in August, and we wanted a menu that would cool guests down, and Beggars more than met that request. I think we received more good comments about the food than about any other aspect of the reception. Make the trip up to Orange if you are getting married in the greater Charlottesville area. The food and service are outstanding, and you can get a stellar meal for a significant value compared to what you would pay for comparable quality in the city.

We loved the food at Beggar's Banquet - they worked with us on a very custom menu that we hadn't seen at any of the many many weddings we've attended. People are still raving about the food 5 months later! Marty and Currey were very responsive during the planning phase and helped us narrow down our vision for the spread with many helpful suggestions. I would definitely recommend them!

From the beginning, Marty and Currey at Beggars Banquet were able to take our vision and help create a menu that matched our style, likes, and desires for our guests. They were extremely helpful and patient, and gave us excellent advice in regards to catering choices, linens, glasses, and dishes. They made sure we had everything that we needed, and it looked wonderful too. We very much enjoyed seeing and tasting our menu ahead of time, and it was so nice to be able to bring my parents along to taste too. Marty and Currey worked with us up until the very last minute to accommodate our needs, and their confidence and professionalism put our minds at ease so that we could enjoy our day.
On our wedding day, Beggars gracious staff worked hard to help things go smoothly and efficiently from set up, to service, to break down. The food was outstanding! Everything was delicious, presented beautifully, and served promptly. We received numerous compliments from our guests who said it was the best wedding food they have experienced, and we completely agree. For us, catering was a very important aspect of our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the way things turned out. After our wedding was over, we were thrilled to find a basket of food goodies in our room for a late night snack (the basket also had a printed menu and linen napkins in our color, all nice touches). We ate everything since we were really hungry, and enjoyed the food even more. It was such a pleasure to work with Beggars Banquet, and we sincerely thank them for all of their efforts in making our dreams come true! We would highly recommend Beggars Banquet!

I could not have asked for better caterers! Absolutely everything served at my wedding reception was phenomenal. Our guests are still raving about the food. The owners are very easy to work with, and they really listen to what you want. They were very attentive to detail and planning during the whole process, and for what they provided there is no better value!

If I could give them a higher score I would. What a wonderful bunch of people. I credit them for making the reception silky smooth. The staff worked with the DJ to make sure everything happened without a wrinkle. They went far above and beyond expectations. I used them to prepare lunch for my bridesmaids while we were getting ready and for the wedding reception as well as table linens. The food was excellent, our guests loved it. After checking several craters Beggars Banquet was the most kind, professional and seamless. They have a shop in Orange Virginia, stopped in and try some of there food that is for sale.

Thank you!!! Marty & Currey were great! We loved meeting with them to plan our menu (they will make whatever your heart desires). The food was seriously delicious! (I was pleasantly surprised considering they were serving 140 guests out a a tent and our guests loved it). We had a fun specialty drink that they executed flawlessly. The service exceeded my expectations, we actually had a great time with the staff.
Beggars Banquet: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day perfect!

I tried calling and emailing and received little to no response. To me, if you're about to shell out over $10K on services, you shouldn't have to beg for service, they should be begging for your business!

The food was fantastic! Service was great and I loved that I could rent our linens and table settings through them. The only thing I was not pleased with was that we had 9 people who did not eat or did not show up, but they didn't leave any leftovers. When we went in for our tasting, they said they would package up the extra food for us, but did not. We paid for 9 extra people and have no idea where the food went to.

Beggar's Banquet had the most exquisite food, the most professional servers, the most beautiful setup, and was managed by the most responsible people I've ever met. I highly recommend them to anyone with the budget for them.
